- Hurry tomorrow
- A compelling documentary about the loss of human rights suffered by psychiatric patients in a state mental institution, filmed over a six-week period in a locked ward at Metropolitan State Hospital in Los Angeles. It shows patients being tied down with straps and cuffs, forcibly drugged with tranquilizers, reducing them to helpless zombie-like states. The film also illustrates how individuals struggle to maintain their dignity in a dehumanized environment. An effort by hospital staff to ban 'Hurry tomorrow' resulted instead in a major investigation of conditions at California's state hospitals, uncovering the tragic deaths of several hundred patients.
